Life

In this piece, I hoped to illustrate life, its trials and joys.

Life

A mouse scurries
between the legs
of a cow, dumb, still,

black, like sleep,
squats near the barn,
adjusts the corn kernel

pinched in its mouth
and squeezes
through a hole

in the red wall,
into air laced
with life and shadow,

to harvest the warmth
woven between straws
of hay piled beside

the strong horse,
its muzzle dunked
in an dented bucket

hungry for yesterday
when the bucket
was heavy with oats.
